Hunterbrook Rock Shelter
Title: Hunterbrook Rock Shelter
Location: Peter Pratts Resturant
Description: The Hunterbrook Rockshelter is a prehistoric site in our backyard which illuminates the science of archaeology and the deep past in the Lower Hudson Valley.
In 1976 Roberta Wingerson of MALFA (Museum and Laboratory For Archaeology) excavated a small cave of glacially tumbled boulders in Yorktown, not far from the Croton Dam. Her discoveries shed light on stone tool types as an indicator of culture and age, the local landscape of thousands years ago and the importance of small scale explorations by trained avocational archaeologists.
